So Dennis McDougal found Kansas a bit boring, eh ("Toto, I Don't Think We're in Hollywood Anymore," Oct. 4)?
I understand. Who wants to hear talk shows on cattle or marijuana control when back in 'quake-land he can listen to important topics explored, like restaurants and diets.
McDougal did seem put off that the creators of the film "Kansas," none of whom had ever set foot in the place, would load their movie with outdated images of overalls and banks with cages. Yet he thought nothing of liberally quoting anyone he could find who spoke chicken-fried English.
Funny, I just spent months in Kansas directing a 4-hour CBS miniseries and I can count the number of those Li'l Abner linguists I met on one hand. Is it possible McDougal approached Kansas with his own set of antiquated images?
